Sainte Luce Reserve

Part of the last remaining absolute coastal forest in the south east of Madagascar, the reserve is managed as a non-profit social enterprise to protect flora & fauna in consultation with local people. Rich in wildlife, you can encounter lemurs, reptiles, and more. Our forest is primarily exotic and rare ebonies and other rare woods. Simple cabins like camping in a shelter, crisp white linen on a mattress on a traditional mat on the floor, inside a mosquito net. You can explore the 17km of beach and endless forest full of wildlife either with or without a guide.

Now, this is what museums looked like some 50 years ago. Lots of shells and fish + other maritime critters on display. And a somewhat misplaced ostrich but why not...There are several stuffed 'blue fish' (coelacanths) which was believed to be extinct but

The 10 Best Things to Do in Antananarivo, Antananarivo Province

Built on a narrow, rocky ridge, Antananarivo occupies a strategic point at the center of the island of Madagascar. Two forts watch over the city from the east and southwest, while within the city limits lay royal palaces, embassies, some fifty churches and a mosque. The city's most distinguishing feature may be the burnt out remains of the Rova, or Queen's Palace, situated on a prominent hill. Its steep alleys and stairways make Antananarivo a challenging but rewarding city to explore on foot.
